Lots of Writing
Requires Lots of Research
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course will honestly make any research paper you have to write seem easy. While it may seem daunting at first, the course is designed to show you how to extensively write a paper, and do it correctly, and once you have the layout, you'll be able to write anything.
The biggest highlight for me was actually writing the paper. The research required was extremely interesting, but I would advise picking a topic you are actually interested in because otherwise you'll drive yourself crazy. The debate it also a highlight and taught me a lot about researching and developing ideas quickly.

Advice for students:
Put as much effort as possible into the Source Analysis's that you have to do. While it may seem like a good idea to slack off and just get them done, you'll really screw yourself later when you have to write your entire paper. Just do it right the first time and you'll be fine! Also, make sure you do your citations correctly, or you'll be scrambling at the end to get it all done. When you are picking a research topic, don't just go with something scholarly because you think it will get you the good grade, pick something youre actually interested in. I wrote about science fiction movies, and my friend wrote about JC Pennys. As long as the research is there to back your topic/question, you'll do fine
